A Railroad Reborn: Metro-North At 25

The creation of MTA Metro-North Railroad in 1983 ushered in a new era in commuter travel. Since then Metro-North has completely rebuilt and revitalized a regional railroad inherited in crisis.

On January 1, 1983, Metro North's new management team immediately went to work resurrecting the railroad. Accepting nothing short of a major reversal of decades-long deterioration in service, comfort, and dependability, Metro-North built new facilities, renovated lines and historic stations - most notably Grand Central Terminal, and updated rolling stock.
